- An inspiration for this song comes from the back cover of a Bob Dylan album, which hyphenated and separated the title "Mr. Tambourine Man" in the most unusual of places (Mr. Tambo - urine Man).
- Many of the lyrics in this song are wrong in one way or another; The Oakland Raiders are a football team, not a baseball team. Plus, at least one of the Johns singing did in fact write the words they were singing.
- This song was covered by Logan Whitehurst and the Junior Science Club, and released on the album The Mini-Album of Luv.
- This song was quoted in the outro of the song "Qualifiers" by hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle.
